I find it sad... that people like Erik Meijer, Mark Lentczer... (even Doug
McIllroy recently demonstrated that there are 2⁹⁹ dialects of haskell!!)
are not being heeded
And this complaint could be greatly alleviated with one little leaf drawn
from racket -- language-packs: teachpacks
Along with the single lightweight directive #lang

It may naturally be asked how is #lang different from ghc's language "-X"
A teachpack would be a bunch of coherent -X options maybe along with a
suitable prelude
